She is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, independent and talkative. She will follow you around when home with you, has been kept indoors only, likes to sleep with owner, ate meow mix dry food 3 times a day and is considered very litter box trained. She prefers a hooded litter box with clumping litter and a scratching post made of rough rope. She lived with children and one small dog.
Curled up in litter box, eyes dilated, very tense. Started hissing and deep growling on approach. Lay in place when door opened, still growling, looking around, occasionally shifting positions. Hissed and threatened to swat when attempted touch. Sprayed feliway.
